"We're bound for the border,
We're soldiers of fortune,
We'll fight for no country,
But we'll die for good pay.
Under the flag of the greenback dollar,
Or the peso down Mexico way."
- - "Mercenary Song" by Steve Earle
A defence contractor based in Geneva, International Inc is the largest independent arms manufacturer in the world. Every world power has used, at some point, an International Inc design, so widespread is their influence.
Background[edit | edit source]
The Arms Dealers
During the Second World War, International Inc changed the world with the invention of the Mobile Construction Vehicle and the module structures that it manufactured, which heavily shaped the tactics of both the Soviet Union and Allied Nations. Rather than spending the vast amount of money expended by other companies to stay on the leading edge of technology, International Inc prides itself on designing simple yet robust designs to provide to smaller nations. The acclaimed Scorpion tank, its most successful design, is used in more than sixty countries.
Most famously, the designs manufactured by International Inc can be purchased by anyone that can pay; though they refuse to sell to terrorist organisations, they admit that their mail-order forms make it difficult to verify their buyer’s origin and intent. However, despite their noteriety as the largest conventional arms dealer in the world, a sizable portion of their profits are donated to charities and aid programs in various countries. Ironically, most of it goes to help rebuild the very countries they supplied weapons to.

Catalogue[edit | edit source]
"Since the founding of our company, and our creation of the groundbreaking Mobile Construction Vehicle, International Incorporated has striven to allow nations to access top-of-the line arms and materiel at minimal costs, letting those nations who wish to remain independent do so, while supplying all walks of life with our easy to use mail order system. From our factories to your hands, International Inc. can provide you quality technologies for whatever you need."
- - Andrei Orlov, founder and chairman of International Inc., page 2 of the International Inc June 1969 Catalogue.
Units[edit | edit source]
|Enforcer||Private military operators, Enforcers use submachine guns and grenade launchers to tackle various threats. They aren't particularly tough or skilled, but can be hired on the cheap.|
|Leopard LAV||A simple light armoured car with a mounted .50 cal heavy machine gun and seating for three additional personnel who can fire out of the windows, the Leopard is a recent design that is rapidly gaining traction on the world stage.|
|Scorpion Tank||The Scorpion, despite its simplistic and old-fashioned design, is the most popular armoured vehicle in the world. They're sold so cheaply that it's not unknown for farmers to buy them as tractors. With a crew of two and a 30mm cannon, the Scorpion is a decent and affordable light tank.|
|Marauder Tank||A heavy tank destroyer with twin 88mm guns, the Marauder Tank possesses heavy firepower, but lacks a turret, leaving it vulnerable to flanking. For protection, smoke grenade launchers can lay down a large cloud of smoke that protects the tank and others nearby, allowing for an unhindered advance or easy escape.|
|Skysweeper Missile Tank||A missile armed AA platform, the Skysweeper can overclock its radar to enhance the effectiveness of other Skysweepers... and microwave airborne infantry and paratroopers!|
|Vanquisher Artillery||A simple track mounting a howitzer on an adjustable base, the Vanquisher can fire in direct fire mode, which is effective against hardened structures and vehicles, or indirect fire mode, lobbing high explosive shells effective against buildings over obstacles.|
|Skirmisher Heavy Transport||A vehicular transport with light armour and room for eight infantry, the Skirmisher is armed with a light machine gun for self defence.|
|60px||Dozer||International Inc uses dozers to make simple defences.|
Defences[edit | edit source]
|II Battle Turret||An update of the classic turret design, the Battle Turret is a simple 85mm cannon in a tank turret on a concrete base.|
|II Guard Bunker||A simple bunker with a machine-gun on a rotating base, the Guard Post can also garrison an additional infantry to supplement its firepower.|
|60px||II SAM Site||A battery of heat-seeking missiles designed to protect a location from air attack.|
Structures[edit | edit source]
|60px||International Inc Warehouse||These warehouses resemble the ones used by the Confederates, and this is no coincidence, because they are designed and produced by International Inc. The IntInc version however produces only the vehicles from the catalogue, as listed above.|
